A diverse and inclusive workplace

At GitHub, we think that a diverse company is a strong company, and we work hard to foster a supportive and welcoming workplace. Learn more about our commitment to diversity.

Work happier

Build amazing things with autonomy, self-direction, and a healthy work-life balance. We offer flexible work schedules for all of our employees and Flexible PTO. We also believe that if a job allows for it, you should work wherever you’re happiest.

Explore HQ

Our office in San Francisco’s SOMA neighborhood is designed to help you find your ideal work environment—whether that’s in a library, hammock room, or roof deck. When it’s time to fuel up, we’ve got an in-house coffee shop and several catered meals throughout the week. We also love sharing our space for community events like meetups, hackathons, and Pride Month celebrations.

Put your health and family first

You’ll enjoy 100% coverage of health insurance premiums across our medical, dental, and vision plan offerings, including coverage for dependents. We also offer five months of paid family leave to all new parents with the option to use it all at once or throughout the baby’s first year.

Find your zen

We cover your gym memberships and offer fitness classes in our onsite gym, the OctoDojo. In the Zen Room, you can recharge through meditation or complimentary massage.

Invest in your future

At GitHub, you’ll have a stake in the future success of our platform with equity grants. For full-time employees, we offer competitive 401k planning with a 50% company match up to the IRS 402(g) annual limit.

Keep growing

Learn how you learn best. From books to conferences, you’ll get a yearly budget for your individual learning and development goals.

Get involved

We believe in sharing our time, resources, and products to create positive social impact. We offer up to 40 hours/year in volunteering credit ($20/hr to any nonprofit of your choice).
